(Posted Posted December 19, 2014)

My wife and I are going through this marriage book called His Needs, Her Needs. It’s a classic book; it’s probably old news for a lot of people. We’ve been married for 5 years, but in a lot of ways we both feel like this past year has been our first real year of marriage.

Seeking a Country
by Jacob Mammen
(Posted Posted December 17, 2014)

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them" (Hebrews:11:13-16).

And the Nobel Peace Prize Goes To…
by Janet Treadway
(Posted Posted December 17, 2014)

Recently, I watched a documentary about the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Kailash Satyarthi, from India. He shared the Nobel Prize money worth USD 1.1 million with Pakistan's Malala Yousufzai, only 17 years old. While we have seen a lot in the news about this amazing young lady, Malala Yousufzai, I had never heard of Kailash Satyarthi.

Do You Show Respect?
by Dan Dowd
(Posted Posted December 16, 2014)

Who shows respect these days? Politicians? Celebrities? Not so much. Disrespect for those in authority is commonplace; and we regularly see angry reactions when people disagree with a decision.

What about the Bible? Is there any respect for God's Word? From the first century A.D. until around the end of the last century, the Bible had a prominent place in individual lives and in the surrounding culture. Now the Bible is portrayed in academics, the news, and film as a book of stories or myths, definitely not the Word of God.

On the heels of the Ferguson riots, New York City is under a wave of protest after the death of Eric Garner. Garner was killed by a policemen in an altercation. According to the police, they approached Garner because he was selling unlicensed cigarettes, and he resisted arrest. They noted that Garner’s rap sheet listed 31 arrests, beginning when he was 16.

Movie Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings
by Mitchell Moss
(Posted Posted December 12, 2014)

In interviews during the early stages of production on Exodus: Gods and Kings, Ridley Scott said that what intrigued him the most about the story of Moses was the relationship between him and his adopted brother, Pharaoh Ramses. That human aspect, he explained, would be what he would explore in the film. Those statements, as well as what I hoped to be incredible visual effects of the supernatural plagues of Egypt are what drew me to see this movie.

Sadly, the film delivers on neither.

Where do you fit in God's cosmos?
by Victor Kubik
(Posted Posted December 11, 2014)

Is tactical nuclear war on our forefront? I recently read a Forbes article detailing four ways that Russia could use its new tactical nuclear strike capacity in the present Ukrainian confrontation. Even though I have thoroughly read, understand and believe God's biblical promises of the coming Kingdom of God for all of humanity, I found the Forbes article disheartening.

A Beautiful Wilderness
by Jacob Mammen
(Posted Posted December 10, 2014)

I don't know about you, but in my life I hope for the godly desires of my heart to become reality. Notice I said "godly" desires. We can all agree that some of the desires that come out of our hearts can leave us and others all messed up. When I read Psalm:37:4: "Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart," I take that as a promise from our Creator!
